the blues shuffle applied to rock
the half time shuffle done by Dennis Chambers a lot
jazz shuffle
double bass shuffle

listen to A LOT of jazz and different music that has shuffle beats in them. honestly i dont think playing shuffle is all that hard. the blunt of the work comes from getting the feel right and really grooving to that so feel is #1 i think. for jazz shuffle i would recommend studying the song "night train" to start off

Listening suggestions:

Mel Lewis is my role model for jazz shuffles.
Check out the sample of Groove Merchant at:

Art Blakey is another jazz drummer with a relentless shuffle.
Check out "Blues March" at: http://www.buy.com/prod/Moanin_Bonus.../60295586.html

The challenge isn't playing the notes. It's playing them in such a way that compels the people around you to bob their heads.
